Frequently Asked Questions

What is Free2IT?

Free2IT wants to help ICT and Digital freelancers directly find new projects that match their skills and discover new customers in different sectors. We want to offer freelancers exclusive services enabled by interesting partnerships.

Can companies see my profile at all times?

No. Companies can only see your profile after you submit an offer. Once you have confirmed your interest by applying to their job post, the company can contact you if they want to. That way, your privacy is respected at all times. Without a reply, you will never be visible to anyone.

I registered and I have not received any emails in my mailbox?

It is important that your Free2IT job e-mails don't end up in your spam folder. To avoid this happening, check your spam filter settings and add the Free2IT e-mail address to the whitelist (no-reply@free2it.com).

Is it possible that I receive spam?

No, it is not possible because protecting your privacy is one of our main concerns. First of all, you will only receive job offers matching your profile. This way, you will not receive jobs which do not match your profile, experience and preferences.

Secondly, if commercial partners are convinced they have a good opportunity for you, we will inform you with a link to their information. In other words, you can decide if you want to get in contact or not. 

How does the job matching work?

The matching procedure works as follows:
Companies look for external support, while freelancers are looking for new projects. Our cloud application directly connects both parties. Companies create job postings. Our application filters freelancers based on hard skill requirements and preferences and sends them an invite. Afterwards, freelancers assess job postings and apply if they want to. Our application scores and ranks these candidates and sends this ranking to the companies. Subsequently companies evaluate the freelancers’ applications. Companies contact freelancers and make an agreement. The selected candidates start their new project.

How will I be filtered and selected?

The matching engine filters your profile according to education, language skills, work experience (including job function, years of experience, sectors, skills and people managed) and preferences. The business matching engine is capable of dealing with high volumes of candidates. After the matching engine matches the right candidates with the job offer, the company has the opportunity to finalize the selection by requesting an interview. 

Can I set my preference for the type and duration of the job?

As a freelancer you can choose whether you want to receive on the one hand assignments or trainings and on the other long or short time assignments. You can even define easily what a ‘short time’ assignment means to you. That way, you will only receive job posts that fit your preferences and experience.

Where can I find help when using the application?

On the upper right corner of the application, you can find a ‘show hints’ button. If you click on the button, you will see question marks which contain information. This information helps you to complete your profile. You can also contact us via info@free2it.com.

How can I increase my chances of getting jobs?

It is important that you fill out your profile, like education, language skills and work experience (job function, years of experience, sector, skills and people managed), and preferences completely to ensure that you don't slip through the matching engine's filter. This way you will receive a full score for your application.

The filter and scoring mechanisms take into account not only your preferencesbut also your work experience, whether it consists of one or more functions. These job functions reflect the experience that you have acquired over the years. The matching engine will check which of these functions are relevant to the requested job and position your profile appropriately with respect to the desired job. If you have carried out a certain function several times with different companies, simply enter this once along with the total number of years of experience. 

Also try to be as specific as possible and avoid using the word 'consultant', given that this will not improve your chances of finding a good match. It is also important that for every function you have worked in you add the most recurring skills required in that particular role. 

In short, you can increase your chances of finding a job that fits your profile by completing your profile as best as you can, mentioning any work experience that is relevant to the jobs you are interested in.
